TANYA DAVIES ENCOURAGES SCHOOLS TO ‘GET HOOKED’ ON FISHING

Wednesday August 19, 2015

Tanya Davies MP, Member for Mulgoa, is calling for schools in the Mulgoa electorate to sign up for this year’s ‘Get Hooked…it’s fun to fish” recreational fishing program.

 

Tanya Davies said, “This is a great program aimed at primary aged children, teaching them to fish recreationally and encouraging them to get away from screens and get outdoors instead.”

 

Elements of the program include a ‘fun resource kit,’ DVD and comprehensive teachers manual for educators, as well as the assistance of enthusiastic volunteers and workshops, to take children on a fun, fishing journey.

 

‘I really encourage schools within my electorate of Mulgoa to join, fishing is one of the State’s most popular recreational activities and no one is too young to ‘Get Hooked’ on fishing.” Tanya Davies said.

 

The program follows the marine mascots Snappy and Squirt, as they venture into learning about sustaining quality aquatic habitats by practicing safe and responsible fishing.  

 

The program is designed to teach students show to fish responsibly as well as to be mindful of the environment and aquatic habitats.
